Case Ref : 19871207, Flight 1771, West USA

Official Narrative

Pacific Southwest Airlines Flight 1771 was a scheduled flight along the West Coast of the United States, from Los Angeles, California, to San Francisco. On December 7, 1987, the British Aerospace 146-200A, registration N350PS, crashed in San Luis Obispo County near Cayucos, after being hijacked by a passenger.

All 43 passengers and crew aboard the plane died, five of whom, including the two pilots, were presumably shot dead before the plane crashed. The perpetrator, David Burke, was a disgruntled former employee of USAir, the parent company of Pacific Southwest Airlines. The crash was the second-worst mass murder in Californian history, after the similar crash of Pacific Air Lines Flight 773 in 1964.

I've been watching a lot of documentaries about the Pacific Southwest flight 1771 that crashed in California in December 1987. Although I can't find anyone who has done any videos that point to a conspiracy I'm finding the whole thing a bit hard to believe. There are many aspects of the crash don't make sense - like how come the plane nosedived at 770mph into the earth, without breaking up in the air, compressed itself into a crater only 4ft by 2ft wide and left nothing but paper behind! No aircraft parts to speak of - just paper! But they did manage to find a gun in the debris, with skin attached to it they could later take a print from, and the cockpit voice recorder survived - although the FDR did not excepting a 6" piece of tape. It doesn't seem to make sense to me. But watching the documentaries it reminded me of your 9/11 documentaries where apparently there were no plane remains just lots of paper! There are other things that don’t make sense like why a guy about to kill everyone on board would leave a note on a paper sick bag which amazingly survived the crash.
